In the Known Lands, it is said that when one powerful prophecy dies in its fulfilling, yet another is born. In the land where Jack, the baker's boy, successfully fulfilled his destiny, a new prophecy arises in the harsh, exotic lands to the north.

Jones' new masterpiece roars to its stunning conclusion.
